At EarPlus we want to help you so that you can enjoy your hearing for the longest time possible. That can be achieved by following these 4 simple tips.

Avoid loud noises

Noise is a major cause of hearing  loss, so you must protect your hearing from loud noises exposure for long periods of time.  If you work in a place where noise is at high levels , ask your supervisor to make sure that you protect your hearing efficiently , according to national rules.
Wear earplugs, when you use noisy machines ( lawnmowers, chainsaws, etc) or when you take part in noisy activities ( concerts, sport events etc).  At home, lower the volume of the TV, radio, and music players. Reduce the volume of noisy appliances that work simultaneously in your environment.

Be careful when you take medication and other substances

Smoke and alcohol are two things that can harm your hearing. Moreover there are many medications that have to be taken carefully, especially certain antibiotics.  Ask your doctor for possible side effects on your hearing from the medication prescribed.

Immediate treatment of ear infection

You will have to avoid ear infections and seek immediate treatment to avoid long-term damages. They can be potentially dangerous, especially in children.

Schedule tactical checks

Hearing loss, like other diseases, can be corrected or helped if it is traced as soon as possible. After the age of 30, it is preferable to test your hearing periodically especially if you are exposed to loud or prolonged noise or you already know you have a hearing problem. An annual hearing check is a good solution.

You may be here because a person close to you has expressed that you may be suffering from hearing loss. A lot of people know someone with hearing loss and many of them have the same experiences you may have : difficulty chatting through the phone or in person, difficulty understanding speech on TV.
